Eggnog Fizz


This is a creamy, fizzy, festive drink to start your weekend off right. 

Yes I love eggnog.  I love to cook with it flavor coffee with it and mix drinks with it.  This drink tastes just like it sounds and can be served with our without alcohol.  Just a little something you can throw together this time of year, with seasonal things you probably already have on hand.





What you will need. 

Ingredients:

1 can Ginger Ale Soda (you can substitute with diet)

1/2 cup eggnog (you may use light)

cinnamon stick for garnish

(You can also add some whipped cream and nutmeg to the top if you're feeling really naughty)



First fill your glass half full of Ginger Ale.  It's important to add the soda first so it doesn't foam up too much when you add the eggnog. 




Next add about a 1/2 cup (depending on your glass size) of eggnog to the glass.  The ratio should be 1 part eggnog to 2parts Ginger Ale, so if you have a cup of Ginger Ale then you should add  a 1/2 cup of eggnog.  If you would like to add liquor this tastes wonderful with about 1-2oz (depending on your glass size) of rum or whiskey.




Lastly take a cinnamon stick and stir the ingredients together.  I love cinnamon sticks in drinks because they are beautiful to look at, lovely to smell and can double as a straw.  If you are feeling really naughty you can also add a swirl of whipped cream to the top and a sprinkle of nutmeg.  Yes this is a very heavy drink but a wonderful treat for parties or if you just need a Holiday pick me up.  Enjoy!
